[Albinism. Escapology] "Tom Jack restrained in chains"

Friedländer, Hamburg, 1915. 96 x 71 cm. Lith. no. 6396.

Mild wear. *Karl Breu (1884-1953) adopted his stage name Tom Jack, following the artistry of Houdini, an escape artist and magician. However, he was mostly remembered for his unusual looks: Karl was born with severe albinism, and intertwined his act and his physical features of a snow white skin, white hair and pink eyes into a mythological persona: the "Ice King".
